And so, this post is dedicated to exactly that!
First of all, the response to my merlin article has been very positive - good to know I'm not the only one who likes the idea! Let's not assume it only applies to the merlin though - many of the other t1 combat frigs are just as viable. Check our these posts concerning the punisher, and also this one (a video actually) showing just what the tristan is capable of.
In terms of new blogs, I recommend newer players take a look at 5K1's EVE. As with many other blogs it covers a new pilots first steps into PVP, however the way he's distilled it down into the key lessons to be taken from each fight strikes me as a really good idea. There's also liberal use of screenshots so you can really get an idea of how the fights took place (I believe he FRAPSes every fight).
Back in Eve itself, Agony recently moved home again; we've now returned to our ancestral hunting grounds in Syndicate - my personal favourite region in New Eden. There are plenty of other small PVP-centric groups living in the area, and so far action has not been hard to find. Without the large blobs of sov space, it's also an excellent area for small gang and solo roaming. We're currently based in 31-MLU up near the entrance to cloud ring, so feel free to stop by and pay us a visit.
Finally, I want to semi-announce a new project that I'm working on. It's closely related to the Know Your Enemy articles, and is inspired by the feedback I got on those from a number of you. That's all I'm going to say for now, but watch this space!
The Altruist is the Eve Online blog of Azual Skoll, PVP instructor and small gang PVPer.
